In 1995 I was living briefly in NYC to organize Gen Ken Montgomery's substantial sound art archive. While I was there I was also presenting a screening at the Segue Foundation. Partially to promote the screening & partially to promote my still fairly new "Usic minus the square root of negative one" record & mainly just to have fun on the radio with my friend Fabio Roberti, I went on the "Free Form Irritainment with Fabio Esq." program.
This turned into a radio presentation beginning with fake station IDs interspersed with static & other radio station signals in homage to my "PAUSE FOR (Radio Play Only)" of 1983. Fabio suggested feasible call letters & I created simple slogans for them. These were:
WMMM - MMM Good!
WTTR - Come TITTER with Us!
WESO - 'Cause we so COOOOL..
WPLA - YOUR Platform.
WNIM - Nimble Radio for Nimble Minds.
WCVX - Civilian Vertical Exchange.
WFAS - Radio in the Fast Lane
WFOO - The Only Station Dedicated to Food
WFUL - For a Wonderful Listening Experience
WBLA - Blah, Blah, Blah
Fabio & I pre-recorded my intoning of these IDs while he mixed in other radio signals. This deliberately somewhat confusing beginning was followed by a playing of my "tENTATIVELY Microtonal" K7 + excerpts from the "Official Wafer Face Record" & my "Usic - â-1 = a Plethora of No Longer Neglected Audio/Conceptual Obstacle Courses" LP (used to mark the quarter hours).
